Checking In on the Teaser for Tim Burton's Live-Action Adaptation of "Dumbo"

June 13, 2018

If you didn't know, super-director Tim Burton has made a live-action film adaptation of the classic Disney movie, "Dumbo." Although not set to hit theaters until March 2019 (!), a new teaser was just released, and with most things Burton, visually, this film is going to look quite good.

Here's the lowdown:

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
